Job Description

The Firm

Our client has a boutique commercial practice at Varsity Lakes at the Gold Coast. This is a growing firm that embraces a friendly and supportive environment. Reputation is a critical part to this firm, growing its practice on clear and regular communication with its clients.

The Role

An exceptionally rare opportunity has become available for a senior family lawyer to manage and develop the firm's Family Law practice. This is a terrific opportunity for a local practitioner, with at least 5 years' experience in family law, to take the next step in their career and join this growing firm as a Special Counsel or Senior Associate depending on experience.

In this role, you can dictate the hours you work as long as targets are achieved. This role would suit a sole practitioner that is looking for the support and network of a growing firm or a senior lawyer with a good referral network that is wanting to be more independent and grow their own space.

About You

You will possess a minimum of 5 years' PAE in family law. You will have a commercial approach and the energy and desire to continue to develop your practice and help the firm to continue its growth path and achieve its goals for this team. A small fee base or proof of substantial network for referrals is necessary. You will also need to be confident to work as the sole family lawyer initially.


  • Attractive remuneration package
  • Substantial bonus scheme
  • Flexible hours
  • Client referrals
  • Friendly and supportive environment
